"Havana Affair (The Ramones cover)" as written by Joey Ramone, Johnny Ramone, Dee Dee Ramone and Tommy Ramone....
PT-boat on the way to Havana
I used to make a living, man
Pickin' the banana.
Now I'm a guide for the CIA
Hooray for the USA!

Baby, baby, make me a loco
Baby, baby, make me a mambo.

Sent to spy on a Cuban talent show
First stop, Havana au go-go
I used to make a living, man
Pickin' the banana
Hooray for Havana!

Baby, baby, make me a loco
Baby, baby, make me a mambo

    General CommentI actually think this is the best cover I have ever heard. They changed the total style of the song, and did a magnificant job!

    General CommentGreat cover. I mean, if RHCP can pull off doing a Ramones cover [not to mention SLOWING DOWN a Ramones song] they're unstoppable.

    General CommentI love this cover! I wish they would have exchanged it from a song off of By The Way. I dont know about you, but I'm not emotinally attached to the song "Throw Away Your Television". But, this cover is amazing in every aspect.

(which is soooooo far fetched) casue this version is just soo damn good. and i dont feel like sitting and reading pples negative opinions on my favorite band everr...it gets me sooo mad! haha

    General Commenti absolutely agree with u nicolelovesrhcp.. the chili peppers did their job well by turning this song into another damn good cover. it's clearly 180 degrees different with the original version by the ramones, but i think it's just as great as the original ones. great job, guys..!!!
